The Roman Forum & Palatine Hill is the ancient city of Rome and is a must-see for an insight into the ancient culture. The Roman Forum is a collection of ruins and historic buildings which used to be a bustling market place, where you can explore the iconic pillars and churches nestled in the old cobbled streets. The Palatine Hill includes 17th century aviaries, an Imperial Palace and huge retaining walls. Rich in Roman mythology and legends, discover Rome’s ancient city…
- House of Augustus

- Arch of Septimius Severus
- Temple of Romulus
- Forum main square
Things to see:
House of Augustus
As the first site upon entering the Palatine Hill it’s hard to miss the House of Augustus. Home to Caesar Augustus during his reign – the grandnephew and heir to Julius Caesar – it contains a wide collection of frescoes and has been recently restored to give visitors an insight into Ancient Rome and its rulers.
Temple of Romulus
Called a titulo in Roman, the Temple of Romulus church is located in the Roman Forum and is truly a sight to behold. A stunning feat of architecture, the rotunda is decorated with two large bronze doors (dating to 300AD) and the apse was designed with a Roman-Byzantine mosaic – you can still see the original marble paving at the new entrance, too.
Arch of Septimus Severus
Built in 203AD the arch was built to commemorate the victories of Emperor Septimus Severus. Measuring 23m high and 25m wide, it’s one of the most preserved and intact monuments in the Roman Forum so it’s a great landmark to get a true sense of ancient Roman design and architecture through its intricate carvings.

So worth it - would 100% recommend and use again.
It was so worth it. My sister and I went to Rome in September 2013 and bought the pass simply to have a vague idea of where to go and maybe get discounted entries/travel. We never once paid for any entry or travel on our 4 day trip due to this. The staff were incredibly helpful and the tours helped us speak to other tourists from different countries to trade tips on restaurants, where to go, when to go, etc. We agreed that the pass was amazing value: discounted (or free!) entry, queue jumps, tours, the tour bus and the free guides, maps and assistance made this pass extraordinary value. I'm a 20 year old British woman and met people all over the world, all different ages and several different languages benefiting from this pass. I will 100% buy this again when I revisit and recommend it to anyone travelling to Rome.
